Australia vs Bangladesh Prediction – T20 World Cup 2024

AUS vs BAN Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Match 44 of the 2024 T20 World Cup and the second game of Group 1 in the Super Eights sees Australia take on Bangladesh at North Sound, Antigua. Australia finished top of Group B in the opening stage of the tournament with Bangladesh ending second in Group D. Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Thursday 20th June at 20:30 local time.

Australia went through the entirety of the first round stage without slipping up or dropping points but they were tested by Scotland in their final match last Saturday. That contest should serve them well ahead of this game and we expect them to be too strong for Bangladesh.

After coming into the tournament with many pundits writing them off, Bangladesh have lost only one game with that defeat a tight four run loss against South Africa in New York. With a competitive record against Australia, we expect Bangladesh to approach this match with confidence.

AUS vs BAN Match Toss Prediction

Although the first three games at this venue in the 2024 T20 World Cup were all won by the team fielding first, the last two have been won by the side batting first. Therefore, our prediction is that both skippers will arrive at the toss wanting to bat first.

AUS vs BAN Pitch Report

We saw 370 runs and ten wickets at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Wednesday with batters having the upper-hand. That said, pace bowlers who bowled accurately and with high level slower balls were able to be successful. We expect a par score on this pitch to be around 180.

Antigua Weather Report

It will be a humid evening in Antigua throughout Thursday evening with plenty of cloud cover and only a very small chance of rain interruptions. The temperature will not drop below 27 degrees.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

With their passage through to the Super Eights already guaranteed ahead of their final first round match, Australia were able to rest Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood with Mitchell Starc and Ashton Agar coming in. We anticipate that Cummins will return for this fixture.

AUS Key Players

  • Travis Head – The opener hit five fours and four sixes in his last innings which is typical of how he has attacked bowlers in all formats over recent years.
  • Marcus Stoinis – The all-rounder has been key to Australia’s fortunes throughout this tournament and although he did not bowl against Scotland he hit a brilliant 59 runs from 29 balls.
  • Adam Zampa – The spinner has become an integral part of Australia’s white ball side over the last three years. He dismissed the dangerous Brandon McMullen in the last game.
  • Pat Cummins – The Test and ODI captain is expected to come back into the team for this game and he will be a threat with the bat as well as with the ball.

AUS Team Form

Australia are yet to lose a game in the 2024 T20 World Cup and have won four in a row.

Australia Predicted Playing 11

Travis Head, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh (c), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

After missing the entirety of the first round stage through injury, we expect Shoriful Islam to be available for Bangladesh throughout the Super Eights. However, with their bowling attack dismissing Nepal for only 85 in their last game, we are not anticipating any changes.

BAN Key Players

  • Towhid Hridoy – As the leading run scorer for Bangladesh so far in the tournament, the 23 year old will be looking to reverse a run of successive scores of nine.
  • Shakib Al Hasan – The left-handed batter has been very important to Bangladesh’s success in the last two matches and Australia will see his wicket as key in this clash.
  • Mustafizur Rahman – The experienced left-arm quick bowler is enjoying a fine run of form and returned figures of 3/7 including a maiden over against Nepal.
  • Tanzim Hasan Sakib – The opening bowler had taken three wickets before the halfway point of the fifth over in the last game and went on to finish with 4/7.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh come into this match looking to make it five victories from their last six games.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tanzid Hasan, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Rishad Hossain, Jaker Ali, Taskin Ahmed, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Mustafizur Rahman

Who will win Australia vs Bangladesh Match?

Both sides come into this game in very strong form but the batting of Bangladesh is a real concern. Therefore, we have Australia as the top side ahead of this Super Eights clash.

🏆 Australia vs Bangladesh Prediction

With the Super Eights now in full flow, we can expect to see the quality of cricket going up and the games getting closer at this stage of the tournament. Bangladesh look like a much stronger side, particularly with the ball, than a month ago, but we expect their batting to be really tested against this high level Australia attack. Our prediction is for Australia to win this match in Antigua.
